David Kelly’s Curated L&D Content for the Week of 5/31/21

David Kelly, Executive Director, The Learning Guild

Over a year ago I updated the opening copy for my weekly curation to highlight resources that can help us navigate the pandemic, as well as the usual resources that can help enhance our work as learning professionals. Who would have thought a year later we’d still be looking at our work through that dual-lens.

While there’s light at the end of the tunnel with COVID-19, its effects will last for some time after the pandemic ends. Each week’s curated resources will continue to focus on everyday knowledge and skills as well as resources focused on navigating the ever-evolving nature of the pandemic and its after-effects.

Here’s a summary of this week’s content:

  • A great checklist for producing your own videos
  • How to create a style guide for your elearning
  • Technologies that are changing the ways we live, work, and play
  • Tips on how to make compliance training more enjoyable
  • Ideas for making learning stick
